Microsoft will upgrade your Office Live Workspace with a Windows Live SkyDrive account. “In an effort to improve and simplify customer experience for Live services, we’ve made the decision to integrate Office Live Workspace with Windows Live SkyDrive into one set of services. When we upgrade Office Live Workspace user accounts to SkyDrive, you’ll get many of the same capabilities you get in Office Live Workspace — with some exciting new features such as Office Web Apps. In addition, SkyDrive provides up to 25 GB of storage space, easy-to-maintain contact lists and calendars, and groups which let you easily set up and share team or group calendars and announcements with people you select,” writes Microsoft. “We’ll notify you in the coming months when you can upgrade your Office Live Workspace account to SkyDrive with Office Web Apps. When you do, all of your workspaces, documents, and related sharing permissions will be available directly within SkyDrive. Until then, you can continue to use Office Live Workspace to store and share documents just as you do today.”
